General reliability of USB storage
we have had an unusual amount of reports of USB drives failing over the last few weeks - 8 or so. Some of these drives are flash memory, others are portable HDs but I was wondering if there could be a connection? My gut feeling is that staff are just not looking after them.
All staff are using laptops of differing models, running Windows 7 enterprise. The usb media is their own and so is likely to be all different types.
Failures include Windows asking to Format the drive when plugged in, or just not seeing the drive at all.
